Is good is over
Not much to say, I was a contractor that after Brexit the whole IT group got replaced with a month notice.

The gender gap was real. Just the team leader was friendly, the rest of the team wasn't really interested in being a team.

Great place to work for
Good company, great location both in Paris and London, the office is modern, good salary. The employees are sharp and savvy.

I would definitely recommend to a friend.

Front of House Coordinator staff is horrendous
Manipulating, controlling, humiliating, low paid, near-slavery. Don't allow to leave the desk, clean shave essential even if grows out same day. Trying to be a 8-star hotel which is absolutely irrelevant to the business they are working in.

Good money
Management a bit poor
The receptionist has more power than a Security.

Security does the job of the receptionist but the receptionist doesn’t do the security job and almost the same Salary.

More hours of work for Security than the receptionist.

Poor management
My interview was very unprofessional, I was interviewed by a guy (A) not really asked much about work more personal things which i found uncomfortable, then he looked through my passport and questioned me about why i had been to certain countys, i was then interviewed by (z) he was more interested in his phone then what i was saying.i found the whole ordeal very unprofessional and refused to work there

It could be better but commensurate to market situation
Good company to work for but a bit overwhelming for contractor.
Man-management could be better.

Work place culture is managable for a season consultant but someone with less experience will struggle to adapt

Not a fun place.
Not a fun place to work. Far too much work for the M&E engineers in a building surveying company. Two mechanical engineers supporting 20 surveyors. I was working very long hours.

strict work place
day to day checking in visitors, emails and post. answering phone calls and dealing with contractors.whilst working there i have learned how to deal with under pressure situations,The hardest part of the job i would say was keeping up with the visitors needs of what they demanded. the most enjoyable part of the job was satisfying the clients and vistors.
Pros
half hour break
Cons
long hours

Worst Company / No support
Been working for Cushman & Wakefield 10 years in the same role. Both HR and management are completely unsupportive.
No help with career progression. Won’t pay for any relevant courses to support your role, yet insist you do stupid inappropriate automated courses that don’t benefit you at all.


Each year we get a letter in the post informing us how well the company are doing but end the letter off telling us we won’t be getting a pay rise.


Whenever senior management come to site, we are never introduced and they are kept away from us. Since I’ve been looking for similar roles in other companies it’s made me realise how underpaid I am. Definitely wasted 10 years of my life.
Pros
Free coffee and tea
Cons
No support

Cushman & Wakefield used to be a very good firm to work for
It has been 12 years since I worked at Cushman & Wakefield but it used to be a good firm to work for. I cannot really any further on what it is like to work there now.

Interesting place to work
I was located in the Bristol office and it was a very interesting place to work as i was in the same office as a number of senior Directors, who were more down to earth than less senior people i have worked with in the past.

They all had a strong work ethic though also knew when to relax and enjoy sport or socialising.
Pros
Office location
Cons
my hours were late finishes

Support Services come last
the working environment at Cushman and wakefield is geared towards its key professionals - chartered surveyors. Very little recognition is given to the supporting professionals be they accountants, HR, credit and risk, operations managers and the like. Long hours, poor pay for the sector and little recognition are to be expected. I didn't enjoy working here, and despite scoring notable successes in centralising UK credit functions, and then EMEA functions for credit i got zero reward for it. I dont beliee there has been much improvement since i left.
Pros
opportunity to gain experience in the sector is unparallelled
Cons
dont expect a bumper pay packet unless youre a surveyor

Very Good Until Outsourcing
When I first joined the business I loved the atmosphere, great colleagues, efficient systems. Since the disastrous and naive decision to outsources the finance processes and make lots of staff redundant the company is no longer recognisable.
Pros
Great loyal staff, modern building, decent staff benefits
Cons
Outsourcing has proven disastrous, redundancies, no progression.

Lack of communication
Since the merger there has been a lack of management and communication! The culture is so laid back that management dont even care. There is no room for progression

My role is being phased out
It's a very busy department so time management is key.
Following the recent merge with DTZ we have various legacy clients/tenants which provides daily challenges, so it's always satisfying to overcome these.
Pros
Central location
Cons
Never ending queries

Good workplace, but lack of advancement for those without prior qualifications
It's a good place to work, good atmosphere and good benefits program, as expected from a big company. However, it suffers from a lot of in fighting and bureaucracy, and a lack of advancement for those of us which come in without property qualifications.
Pros
Good salary and benefits
Cons
Poor advancement, little management
